1956 'GEECHEE DEDICATION
Mrs. Margaret Spencer Lubs is, we feel, well-deserving of the 1956 'Geechee Dedication. A mem-
ber of the original Armstrong faculty, Mrs. Lubs has served the college faithfulh through many of the
intervening years. A teacher of French and English, she holds a degree in the field of music as well
as French, has been a strong supporter of the once active student French Club, and is co-author of
the words to our fine Alma Mater.

PRESIDENT HA WE;
The year 1956 has been a vital one at Armstrong. Enrollment has soared, changes necessary to a dy-
namic curriculum have been made, and improvements and repairs to the college are noticeable everywhere.
The guiding force behind these signs of progress is our President, Foreman M. Hawes. In his nineteenth
year as president of the college, Air. Hawes deserves the tribute of the 'Geechee staff and all students for
his fine administrative abilities and qualities of leadership.
As we all know the President's office is readily accessible to the student with any kind of question or
problem, and Mr. Hawes' interest in student affairs, his insistence on the student's right of self-government
has been a strong factor in strengthening the power of the Student Senate.

The 1956 'Geechees, under the capable
leadership of a new coach, Roy Sims, with
only three hold-overs from the previous
year, began the season slowly. The going
was rough at first but by mid-season the
team had gained considerable polish and
was able to better its record in the latter
part of the season by winning five out of
the last seven games. The total number of
'Geechee points for the season was 1,376
making an average of 68.8 per game.

The Canterbury Club is Armstrong's
religious organization primarily for
Episcopal students. It is the college's
most recently organized club having
been initiated only this school year.
The club's activities in its first year
included weekly Sunday evening serv-
ices and social meetings at St. Paul's
Episcopal Church and occasioned so-
cial gatherings at members' homes.
Mrs. Margaret Lubs served as facul-
ty advisor and much invaluable as-
sistance was rendered by Mr. John
Ford and Mr. Henrv Russel.

Club, has led the club in many activities.

The main aim of Wesley Foundation is to link
college more with the church. It succeeded with the
joint cooperation of the Canterbury Club in pro-
viding services for students during Lent. The mem-
bers held their meetings bi-monthly and often at
each other's homes. The group participated in many
of the state conferences and retreats and is affiliated
with the State Methodist Movement.

A tense moment in "Outward Bound.'
Under the able and sensitive hand of the new di-
rector, Ross C. Durfee, the Masquers opened a
successful season with a Russian farce, "Squaring
the Circle" by Valentine Kataev. In the play, the
leading roles were competently rendered by Dottie
Baxley, Ed Newton, Claire Sutton, and Ronald
Langford. The excellent staff of supporters was
comprised by Cecil Pacetti, Don Fallin, Alfred
Baker, and Dickie Pacetti.
In the Winter quarter the play chosen for pro-
duction was Sutton Vane's comedy-drama, "Out-
ward Bound." In a well received rendition of the
novel play, Jerry Muller, Molly Williams, Ronald
Lasky, Linda Nease, and Robert Epps, represented
dead people enroute to heaven — or hell. Romantic
interest was capably supplied by Mack Jones and
Joyce Mincey, while Danny Cronian represented
the sympathetic steward who allayed their fears of
the Examiner, Pete O'Millian.

Concentrating in the courses at Armstrong related to their
chosen field, the student nurses from the Candler Hospital
School of Nursing take their freshmen year's work at Arm-
strong. Though their busy schedule permits them little time
for college activities, the nurses are welcomed at all school
functions held at the college and often hold dances of their
own in Jenkins Hall.

\1 J '/hen Mrs. O'Leary's cow kicked over the kerosene lamp, her owner had
no idea that such a simple incident would set in motion a chain of fires
that would lay waste to vast sections of the city of Chicago.
We have a suspicion that the motorist who flicks a lighted cigarette from
the window of his car while driving through Georgia's magnificent forest areas
doesn't realize that this simple act of thoughtlessness could start a forest fire
that might destroy millions of trees, homes and business structures, wild life, and
Union Bag & Paper Corporation and other concerns comprising the state's
rapidly developing forest products industries are growing more trees for to-
morrow. If these young trees are to provide jobs, payrolls, and urgently needed
products in the future, they must be protected from fire.
Won't you please cooperate with us by snuffing out your cigarette in your
car ashtray and encourage others to adopt this sound forest fire prevention
